When melted plastic sticks to your glass cooktop, it is typically result of a plastic bowl, spatula, spoon or similar cooking utensil that was accidentally placed atop the glass stovetop while the burners are still hot. Aside from the damaged plastic item, you also are left with the melted residue to remove from your glass cooktop. By acting quickly as soon as you notice the melted plastic you can quickly clean up the residue without causing harm to your glass cooktop.
Things You'll Need
- Dull metal knife
- Dish rag
- Dish soap
- Nylon scrubber
Quickly remove the plastic item and turn off the stove burner. Do not place any other items on that stove burner until you remove all of the melted plastic.
Scrape off excess melted plastic with a dull metal knife such as a butter knife. Continue until you remove the majority of the plastic.
Wipe over the glass cooktop quickly with a wet nylon sponge drizzled with a dollop of dish soap. Wipe quickly as you do not want the sponge to get overheated. Repeat until all plastic is removed from the glass.
Wipe off the area quickly with a damp dish cloth to get rid of any leftover dish soap.
